In this article you will learn more about the Amazon Web Services, how to use its products, how to integrate them in your e-commerce and how to measure their performance.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a collection of on-demand cloud computing services that together make up a comprehensive and fully managed cloud platform.
The intention of developing these products was to improve and simplify the computing experience for developers and IT professionals. And so far, it seems that customers are happy with these improvements since the user base keeps growing.
But these great results are also due to the fact that AWS was launched as a managed service. It means that customers do not need to maintain or manage their own hardware infrastructure. Therefore, it takes away a big workload from them.
To begin with, AWS has three fundamental services: compute, storage, and DNS. But most people (probably your company) are going to be interested in compute or the AWS Lambda functions.
The advantages are diverse and go from not having to manage hardware to having security and backup systems in place. In addition to being able to run your code without having to manage virtual machines like you would with Heroku or DigitalOcean.
But there are many more benefits to using this service. All of them related to how many products Amazon offers in its AWS portfolio. Some of these services help with collecting data from e-commerce platforms while others help with running machine learning models more efficiently.
Today, we’ll talk about the Amazon Product Prices API, a good tool for extracting data from Amazon products and analyzing their market. You can also use it for your own research purposes as well as for planning your product catalog. And even though it is free, you have to use it in JSON format so you can send the information from your website or e-commerce directly into your app interface.
Amazon Product Prices API is a web service that delivers the Amazon pricing and product data with the goal of better informing consumers about product pricing on Amazon. This includes current and historical pricing data as well as important metadata like ASINs, names, descriptions, etc., for a vast array of items offered on Amazon Marketplace.
This site can be used by sellers to track prices of items based on certain criteria by connecting their Seller Central accounts to this module. It can also be used by consumer marketplaces as a pricing intelligence tool or a price tracker for specific product categories or keywords.
Retrieve information about any product you are looking for on Amazon. Also, check its historical prices.
To make use of it, you must first:
1- Go to Amazon Check Price and Search Items API and simply click on the button “Subscribe for free” to start using the API.
2- After signing up in Zyla API Hub, you’ll be given your personal API key. Using this one-of-a-kind combination of numbers and letters, you’ll be able to use, connect, and manage APIs!
3- Employ the different API endpoints depending on what you are looking for.
4- Once you meet your needed endpoint, make the API call by pressing the button “run” and see the results on your screen.
